Well, that's problematic. All Lyle did was leave me hanging since he didn't provide any other info than this which kinda forces me to more or less try to find the book (don't wanna buy anything) to see what he actually said on hormones....

Quote:
The Hormonal Response

The hormonal response to any kind of high-intensity training is significantly different than in response to low-intensity training. While low intensity training typcially only releases noradrenaline (from the nerve terminals) with only small amounts of adrenaline (from the adrenal medulla), high-intensity exercise releases both adrenaline/noradrenaline in large amounts.

For various reasons, all of which are discussed in some detail in The Stubborn Fat Solution, that hormonal response can be beneficial to fat loss. Quite in fact, in that book, I use intervals for specifically that reason in two of the stubborn fat protocols.

In addition to potentially impacting on fat mobilization (lipolysis), this hormonal response can have one other major effect that is probably a major cause of the results in many of the studies being cited by the pro-interval group. That’s that high intensity exercise often blunts hunger.

Oh yeah MOD after that he goes into:
~rant about people not controlling diet.
~Effect of high intensity exercise to blunt hunger but very little fat loss from uncontrolled diet
~simply making people work harder is a plus but can be a minus
~rants on about "fat burning zone"

So yeah.. fairly 'obvious' stuff I guess. Anyone have his book and can tell me what's in the hormonal chapter or various sections?

I've got the book, but I'm away for the weekend and will have to wait a couple of days for anything specific. But, if memory serves, he mostly likes intervals due to the higher catecholamine release. There are a couple of other bits dealing with interval length and some theory work that seems to have panned out, but it would basically be giving away a good chunk of the plan if I posted it.

But, like all of Lyle's books, it's easily worth the cover price and I'd recommend picking up a copy.

I don't really care too much about fat loss plan since I'm not in the market for that.

I know about the catecholamines especially epi and norepi. I was just wondering if he went into any detail about any other hormones which I am going to in the neuroendocrine article I'm writing. To be clear all I want to know is all of the hormones he talked about besides catecholamines if any. I don't really care about the training program aspect of it.

Basically so I don't waste my time writing up something that has already been written up.

And yeah, considering I'm a student I'm pretty poor. So buying books is out the question ATM (well, to be fair there's other books on higher priority at least). I search local libraries for it, but they don't have it.. at least yet.

Oooook. So it's done. All 6 pages with 51 source cites. It's nowhere near *comprehensive* as you'll see but I discuss 3 of the more important hormones and pretty much every way they relate to exercise then analyze how they all relate in terms of HIIT/metcon/resistance exercise/endurance. Hopefully you guys will enjoy.

Being proofread right now and maybe in next PMenu? We'll see.

You'd have to ask Greg about hard copies because I am unsure of that answer.
